Start-Up Activation Programme

Got an idea?

Our Start-Up Activator Programme can help!
We work with people to provide tailored support to talk through your early-stage ideas, share invaluable tools and resources and connect you with others who can help you turn your idea into reality.

  • Start-Up Activation Programme

    The Start-Up Activator Programme supports people in the very early stages of their business or project development in Christchurch. We have dedicated team members at the Ministry of Awesome who will help take your project or business idea to the next level.

    An initial 30-minute session provides the opportunity to seriously discuss an idea, business, social enterprise, or project. Sessions are available to anyone—of any age—wanting to bring their ideas to the next level. We also hold informative workshops, events and educational labs where you can up-skill, accelerate your idea and connect with other entrepreneurs.

    Ask us how you can participate in the Start-Up Activator Programme by emailing with a few lines about your idea and where you need help!

"Ministry of Awesome is simply the best place for pitch coaching in Canterbury. The feedback was the most thorough and supportive I’ve ever had and really helped to take my delivery to new level.”
